Daily Reflection with Fr. Tomas Del Valle-Reyes

Dear Friends: Praying is not easy. Our daily routine calls for our full attention. And the world around us puts little value on prayer; our lives are full of material things but at the same time are getting emptier in God’s value.

For this reason, I will post a daily reflection and as you visit this site may the Holy Spirit within you come to your aid and guide you gently to the God who loves you

I Thank You, God, For Loving Me So

I thank You, God, for loving me so,
And I thank You for letting me know.
Thank You for sending Your Son,
To show You love us every one.
You didn't create us and walk away,
But You're right here with us every day.
Your Holy Spirit makes it clear,
That now and always You are near.
You supply our needs abundantly,
Air and sunshine fresh and free.
Water to drink and food to eat,
Good food like vegetables, fruits and meat.
Blessings more than I could earn,
New truths every day that I can learn.
When I am slow You don't clobber me,
But You're patient and kind as only You can be.
You don't ask for more than I can do,
You only ask that I trust You.
And that I always for You live,
And obey the instructions that You give.
My sins You've forgiven and forgotten,
Even though they are so vile and rotten.
My pride and ego want me to think I'm great,
But compared to You I just don't rate.
You are so great and good and all,
When I think of You I feel so small.
I'm thankful that You see what I can be,
If I allow You to live in me.
Your love and strength to me You give,
And You allow me for You to live.
I thank You, God, for loving me so,
And I thank You for letting me know.
